Happy Birthday Earthling

My brother-in-law is celebrating a birthday soon. His name is Marvin and he loves Marvin the Martian, so every few years I send him a card featuring that cartoon character. This year, I combined Marvin the Martian with some MFT products for this fun shaker card.

I love how MFT products make me look like a genius in under ten minutes!

I used the shaker circle pouches which fit perfectly inside the Happy Birthday circle die which I cut from white paper and colored with the same Copic markers I used for Marvin. I colored with the green first then came back and highlighted the ends with yellow. The black check paper is long retired from CTMH and the small stripe of green is from a trimming that I colored with the green Copic and glued very carefully against the edge of the black paper.

He is so stinkin' CUTE!! I can't wait for the real Marvin to get his card.

Now it's off to my day job. Final edits came back for To Catch a Bride which is available for pre-order now. Once they are done, it's time to write the final two stories in this series. Wow! Can't believe Gina and I are almost done writing these stories.

Until next time,
